Five fantastic magical creatures 

The much anticipated Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them came out today! And even though I’m not going to see it I thought I’d celebrate the release anyway. (Plus it’s my sixth month blogging anniversary!) I figured a good way to celebrate a movie about magical creatures would be to talk about the magical creatures whom I think are the most fantastic.

1. Dragon

You can’t have a list of mythological creatures and not include dragons, I think most everyone can agree that there awesome. I can’t think of dragons without thinking of How to Train Your Dragon Toothless is adorable, and those movies are so good I can’t wait for the third one.

If you’re looking for a good book about dragons I highly recommend Seraphina by Rachel Hartman. I actually have a review if you care to read it but basically it’s good and creative. 

2. Fairy

Perhaps my favorite mythical creature sadly I haven’t read a amazing book about them. I adored fairys so much when I was little I even had a book about them I actually still have it I would tell my dad about the fairy world I’d created inside my head. I still think about the fairy story I made up I thought about writing it but I’m not a good writing, but maybe I will one day but it would be a lot more bloody then the story little me came up with it. Come to think of it The Book Fairy would have been a much cuter name then Codn Reviews Books.

3. Mermaid

I haven’t actually read any books about mermaids I know they exist but none of them really look good to me they all seem a bit cliche, maybe I’ll give one of them a chance do you know a good mermaid book? But I have seen them in a lot of movies and I clearly love them.

4. Pegasus

Pegasus by Robin McKinley is one of my favorite books, about a girl and her Pegasus who is bonded to her I love the world I think it was done so well. It made me love Pegasus I already liked them but now I like them more because the book is important to me plus there just cool and pretty.

5. Pukwudgie

I had to include Pukwudgie since that’s my Ilvermorny house I do identify more with my Hogwarts house Hufflpuff but I am American so technically I would go to Ilvermorny and be a Pukwudgie. I loved the story about the founding of Ilvermorny and William the Pukwudgie had a lot to do with it and Pukwudgie’s seem like their pretty great, I liked William at least.

What do you think the most fantastic magical creatures are? Do you agree with my list?

  1. For fairy books, I highly recommend the Tithe series by Holly Black, and the Wicked Lovely series by Melissa Marr. When you mentioned mermaids I realized yet again that I don’t think I’ve ever really read a mermaid book haha (I went on a hunt for some before). I found two a while back that I added to my wishlist because they sounded interesting although I haven’t read them yet: Deep Blue by Jennifer Donnelly, and Of Poseidon by Anna Banks.

    1. Thanks for the suggestions I’ll check them out. I have heard of Tithe but my sister didn’t like it and we tend to have similar reading taste. Although I like Holly Black’s other books but I think I might try A Darker Part of the Forest instead since I think it’s also about fairies

    I'm going to watch FB tomorrow night and I'm so excited 😀

    Sorry, I don't really know any mermaid book (I really want to read them too :P) but I've heard great things about "Of Poseidon" by Anna Banks – it's on my wishlist, maybe you'd like to check it out 🙂
